On move 38, White resigns, as the Chessmaster recommends that White moves Bishop to e4 and then Black responds by Rook takes pawn at a4.

Analysis: Your rook captures pawn, Rxa4, which attacks White's pawn at b5 and isolates White's pawn at b5. White counters by moving the king to f4. Your bishop takes pawn, which pins White's bishop and creates passed pawns on a7 and b6. White counters by moving the king to e3, which frees White's bishop from the pin. You move your rook to a3, which checks White's king. White replies by moving the king to f4, which moves it out of check. You move your pawn to a5, which pushes the passed pawn. White responds by moving the pawn to h4. You move your bishop to d3. White replies by moving the bishop to d5, which pins your pawn at f7. You move your pawn to b5, which pushes the passed pawn.

As a result of this sequence of moves, you win two pawns. Additionally, your pawn structure is somewhat stronger, and White's pawn structure is slightly weaker.
